So ive had my ranger for about 3 months now and i absolutely love the truck.Ive put alot of work into the truck and im going to keep improving it until its perfect in my eyes.
But onto my questions...i have been told my truck is a 21 gallon tank and its a 20 or a 19.6 gallon tank. Currently i get about 305 to a tank of gas.I did the math and if its a 21 its getting 14.5, if its a 20 its getting 15.2 and if its 19.6 its getting 15.5.I'm trying to find out the EXACT size of my tank,not someones guess,i need the facts,ive searched all over the forums and throughout google and i see answers ranging from 19.6 to 21.9 gallons. So if anyone knows for a FACT what size the tank is on a 93 X Cab 4WD 5spd 4.0 please chime in.

I don't get why you need to know how big Ur tank is. just fill Ur truck up run it to Like a quart tank fill it back up look at pump and see how many gallons u put in it and then divide how many miles you went buy the number of gallons u put in it this will give you a more accurate number

What they said, I wish I could find out for sure lol. I have no odometer this no trip meter oh well. I've thought about using GPS and all that but too much hassle to get it set up before each trip :(

All you gotta do is Google search the year, model, motor of your truck on Edmunds and you will see all the specs there. Get a manual as well.

The size of your tank has absolutely nothing to do with your MPG. You are not going to run it dry each fill up. As has been already said, all you need to know is how much gas to each fill up (it is shown on the pump) and divide by the number of miles you went on each fill up.

If you are filling when the gage reads E, you still have anywhere from 1 to 4 gallons left in the tank. You can't use the tank capacity to measure MPG.

Bout 15mpg is par for these trucks.

Is it going to really matter if its 14.9 or 15.2 mpgs?

Driving conditions change, there will always be a slight variance. You can't duplicate driving conditions.

Well thank you guys for the information. I always thought the best way was to run it out and check but I get the picture now.

That won't always work. My truck has a 2.9 and a 14.5 gallon tank. One of the guys I work with has a 2.9 Ranger with a 17 gallon tank. Different body.

My wife's Escape has a 3.0 with a 15.5 gallon tank. Our neighbor has a 3.0 Escape with an 18 gallon tank. What's the difference? Ours is AWD. The driveshaft would intersect the larger fuel tank.

Well thank you guys for the information. I always thought the best way was to run it out and check but I get the picture now.
Running it dry it the worst thing you can do to a fuel pump. Miles driven divided by fuel taken on is the only accurate way to do it. Helps if you use the same pump each time too.

My 93 is bone stock. I usually end up 17.7 combined with the A4LD.
